My wife and I have recently got into breeding ball pythons and dumeril’s boas and we have are indecisive about how to heat them. We have some racks on order from ARS but are also building some PVC racks. The big question is, is it feasible to heat the snake room to a constant temp and not need heat tape? The room is small and doesn’t have windows so the heat loss of the room isn’t my biggest concern. This being one of the big reasons we are getting the nicer racks will make a price difference. Not that it is the only reason we are considering it. I’ve also heard it causes less slugs if you don’t have belly heat but the guy that was doing it that way only had females in that room. Just wanting the communities opinion because you’ve all done this more than us some of you may have even tried both.
